The schedule of lessons for 2012 has been more or less online for a while, but I think I can finally say it's complete and ready to go! (No more tinkering.) Everything has been put into a new online registration system which lets you see the full slate of lessons at a glance, or view by course category, or even by calendar. Once you find the course you like, you can then register for that course. You'll see if there is room in the course or if's full.

My father-in-law loves to play with video editing so he put together this fast-paced (and somewhat loud) video as a fun project using video he took of me teaching kayak courses at Candle Lake in the summer of 2011. Don't worry, my courses are actually much more relaxed than this high energy video portrays.



Coldspring Paddling Instruction will be coming to Candle Lake for over a week at the end of July and have 7 kayak paddling courses on the agenda for that time period. There will also be a bit of time for custom kayak lessons while we are there. You can see the schedule at our Candle Lake page. Learn to kayak in the beauty of the parkland in north-central Saskatchewan!

Much of the Coldspring Paddling Instruction 2013 schedule of kayak lessons is now posted on the website. Check out these great courses being held in and around Saskatoon (more to come):


It's going to be another great year!
